“Chase really enjoys trying to hit a homerun at every bat and sliding home,” his mother Sherri Goodwin said. Chase played baseball with the Indians as a first baseman. He also made the Allstar team and played center field. Madison Mad Sox won first place in the Constellation bracket at the World Series.

In basketball, he played center with the Kings, who won the championship game for 7U teams. In flag football, he played wide receiver and quarterback with Upwards.

Chase is a third-grader at Columbia Elementary School. Last year, he participated in Drama Club and performed in “The Wizard of Oz.”
